Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on choice Pick Number One took control at the 150m after sitting one-off in second behind Happy Meteor to remain unbeaten three times on this surface from four starts. He remains one to follow. Chung Wah Spirit closed well following a midfield run to grab second 50m out in a solid first run on the dirt. This run shows he has options on both surfaces. Super Man was back to his consistent self when whacking away for third following a prominent run without cover. Borntoachieve ran on steadily one-off in midfield to take fourth. He rarely runs a bad race sprinting on the surface but doesn't have much upside following a last start win. Cheer Win closed well after travelling fourth from the rear in a pleasing first run on the surface. He isn't a prolific winner but is pretty honest and this opens up new avenues. Lucky Master was making good headway down the outside after a patient ride second from the rear from a wide gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (345) - OAK MARITIME HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

RELENTLESS ME shifted out at the start and bumped BORNTOACHIEVE.

From wide barriers, ARIZONA BLIZZARD, STAR OF YAN OI and LUCKY MASTER were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 800 Metres, LAMAROSA raced tight outside SUPER MAN which drifted out.

Passing the 600 Metres, ARIZONA BLIZZARD was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CHEER WIN.

In the early part of the Straight, CHUNG WAH SPIRIT raced close to the heels of PICK NUMBER ONE.

Throughout the race, SUPER MAN, LAMAROSA and RELENTLESS ME travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding his riding of LUCKY MASTER rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight, K C Ng stated that rounding the Home Turn he was racing to the outside of ARIZONA BLIZZARD and his mount was racing tractably at this time.

He said at the entrance to the Straight he immediately directed LUCKY MASTER to the outside of RELENTLESS ME, however, LUCKY MASTER commenced to hang in badly and was reluctant to improve to the outside of RELENTLESS ME.

He said at that time he directed LUCKY MASTER's head outwards in an attempt to have it shift out and near the 300 Metres went for another hold with his left hand as LUCKY MASTER continued to be reluctant to shift to the outside of RELENTLESS ME.

He added because of this he was not able to test LUCKY MASTER in the early part of the Straight.

He said after being able to shift LUCKY MASTER to the outside of RELENTLESS ME approaching the 200 Metres, he was able to use the whip on the horse which then commenced to race more tractably and finished off the race well.

After considering the evidence of Jockey Ng and after viewing the videos, the Stewards accepted his explanation and took no further action.

After the race, O Doleuze (STAR OF YA OI) reported that his mount coughed on several occasions when pulling up following the race.

A veterinary inspection of STAR OF YAN OI immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, STAR OF YAN OI will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

After the race, S Clipperton reported that LAMAROSA travelled too keenly in the race and because of this was required to travel wide and without cover outside SUPER MAN.

He said because of this LAMAROSA was not able to finish off the race.

A veterinary inspection of LAMAROSA immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, LAMAROSA will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Also after the race, C Schofield reported that he had to ride GOLDEN SUN hard throughout the race to obtain as forward a position as possible.

He said having regard to the manner in which GOLDEN SUN raced, he believed that the horse may be better suited over a longer distance than that of today's race.

A veterinary inspection of GOLDEN SUN immediately following the race found that horse to be a "roarer?? A veterinary inspection of HAPPY METEOR immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in both horses' tracheas.

Before being allowed to race again, HAPPY METEOR will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

PICK NUMBER ONE and CHUNG WAH SPIRIT were sent for sampling.
